Career planning

Career planning at our girls high school

Woodford House equips young women to embrace the brightest possible future and career planning at our girls high school is a key focus.

“We actively encourage our students to become global citizens and our staff are passionate about helping the girls broaden their options for future careers and pathways. We want them to know that there are no glass ceilings in their world and that anything is possible.”

Our girls are assisted in their individual career aspirations by developing essential skills and knowledge around career options. Our goal is for each student to be open to developing self-awareness and self-belief to have the courage to make sound decisions for their career pathway.
